“relaxing and friendly”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

l have been to Olive Branch several times and this is the third year in a row we have gone on NEW YEARS EVE there is always 12/14 of us and the the service is always good and friendly, you are not rushed and the staff are very attentive. The food is lovely and not over priced which is one of the reasons we go on new year's eve as everywhere else tends overcharge. The children like their pizza's and they also do chips. The mixed Kebab is a favorite of mine. lt has a relaxed atmosphere and it's only small so not too noisy. No doubt we will be back again next new year's eve.

“My favourite local”
Reviewed November 10, 2012 via mobile

Consistently good food and great service - Olive branch has earnt its reputation in Hebden. It's small but this kind of helps with the atmosphere. Hebden has a plethora of coffee shops, which is fine, but when you want a substantial meal and a good hour or so with a friend over a couple of glasses of wine, Olive Branch does the trick. Food is always consistent and authentic and the service is great without being intrusive.

“Fabulous little bistro”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

Visited Hebden Bridge last week and ate at the Olive Branch before going to a gig at the Picture House. It was pretty quiet when we first arrived 5.45ish but was packed by the time we left 7.00ish. We had the hot meze to share for starters which was delicious and we were so full we couldn't manage a main course. We did sample desert and coffee though which were also delicious. The place has a great atmosphere and the staff were really friendly and helpful. And it was pretty good value for money too. I would definitely eat there next time I'm in Hebden.

“Never disappointed!”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

We visit The Olive Branch on at least a monthly basis- for a couple who don't regularly eat out this is quite impressive! The food is always 10/10- fresh, hot and full of flavour and the hospitality is second to none. The restaurant is small, yes, but this simply adds to the atmosphere and with the gentle music u can get lost in this little Turkish treasure! There have been occasions when we come on a busy night and they always are able to accommodate us. One time we went as a group of four for a last minute booking on a sat night- they managed to sort us out with a table which wasn't ready when we returned however the free round of drinks when we were eventually seating more than made up for that! ( it was so busy and short notice most restaurants would have turned us away!) Overall fantastic restaurant made by the great food and staff- definetly one to try if you haven't already- and the mid week offer for a starter and main is great value!

“Great Place”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

I eat at the Olive Branch regularly before going to the lovely Hebden Bridge Picture House. The food is fresh and flavoursome and the service is attentive and friendly. I like the meze starter and lamb main courses. The midweek deal is spot on.
